A look back at Mount Jefferson (Nevada Segment 5) from the summit of Table Mountain (Nevada Segment 6) - Jerry Thomas

Pine Creek Ranch to Moores Station

We have completed a complete upgrade of the American Discovery Trail in Nevada from Pine Creek Ranch to Moores Station.  For the 60 miles, there are no on-trail 'trail towns' for resupplying, but there are a few opportunities to grab water from mountain springs and streams.

The views abound as you top out on Table Mountain in the west and reach each of the three summits of Hot Creek Range.  The most difficult of the ascents are so mostly for their length, than their steepness.

Climb Categories for Nevada Segment 6

The ADT Guide includes GPS coordinates and elevation for all 55 waypoints.  And you will need them – especially for a 5-mile section on the Hot Creek Range called the Fandangos Trail.  It is an unmarked, contour hike around the south end of the range passing between Big and Little Fandango summits.

The latest update also includes the new map resolution standard of 2 to 3 miles per page. And of course, hiker notes, tips, water reports and more are included.
